won't you be my (virtual) neighbor?

Literally blowing sunshine out my ass…

Finally finally finally. I did a fast and a colon cleanse. Above is the machine at work. On me. Yes!

As it turns out, I’m as healthy as I suspected (yay!), and though it was good to see the dead worm go (anti-parasite medicine, after India, here I come again), I don’t feel the urge to rush back. The big news is that I can fast; I’ve always been so afraid to even try. OK, I only did it for two days, but hey, that’s the longest I’ve ever gone in my life. And what I noticed was how amazing food tasted after that. So the fasting, now that’s another story.

Since time immemorial, fasting has been a tool of spiritual seekers. Now I feel, finally, it is one that is open to me. If I can ever access it. Meanwhile I’m going to finish the Tutmak brownie (not as good as at Kaffe) and Indian chai (better than Kaffe).
